Wolverhampton Wanderers made their first signing of the summer earlier this week in Yerson Mosquera.

The Colombian defender has signed a five-year deal with the club.

He has reportedly cost around £4.5 million.

By many accounts, that is a snip for a player with very exciting potential.

Mosquera hasn’t been on the scene for very long, but he was viewed as one of the best prospects in Colombia.

The Wolves recruitment team was said to be delighted by the South American’s signing.

Hopefully Wolves bring in one more central defender, but it’s a positive start to the window.

Mosquera, of course, will need some time to settle in.


Football expert Carlos Aleman praised his talent, but was surprised by the speed of the move.

He expects he will need time, but maybe Wolves have the ideal mentor for Mosquera.

Boly can help Mosquera

Willy Boly is an experienced central defender, who obviously knows the Premier League very well.

He will potentially have a key role in the development of Mosquera.

Mosquera has taken Boly’s number 15, and he’ll hope to take plenty of elements of his game going forwards.

Conor Coady will no doubt pass on his pearls of wisdom.

But Ivory Coast star Boly is the club’s best defender and will hopefully have a great impact on the youngster.
